IGNOU launches vocational courses for prisoners

Nagpur: Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) has started vocational courses for prisoners to give them employable skills upon their release.

The four certificate courses have been developed and designed by IGNOU's Nagpur regional centre.

The course material was finally developed in collaboration with the Central Jail and two other IGNOU community colleges.

IGNOU will offer certificate courses in carpentry, welding, bakery products and garment design. The courses are designed and developed based on the infrastructure available within the jail premises. The course will give more importance to practical work than theory.
